A friend dropped by and gave me a bushel of assorted squashes. SO I decided to make a squash pie from scratch. For projects like this I always look at this antique cook book we have (circa 1900) that almost always has recipes for scratch cooking. Well, I came across a pumpkin/squash pie recipe that looked pretty normal except it also included the juice and zest of one lemon. So I gave it a shot and couldn't have been more pleased with the results. It really brightens up the filling.

Mike, winter squash pies are wonderful! First time I had one was in Massachusetts.

The latest Gourmet Magazine has an article how old cookie recipes are comforting. There is suppose to be one cookie from every year that Gourmet has been published posted on their website. It would be fun to go through them.

I think your squash pie sounds really wonderful!

Susan,

The book I got the recipe from is "The Settlement Cook Book". I have used it for a number of different recipes. In a way it is a shme that we have moved away from scratch ingredient recipes.

Mike, "The Settlement Cookbook, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" was one of the first cookbooks that my mom bought when she married my father in 1951. I don't have a first edition but I also bought a used copy from the 1920s. That is an excellent cookbook!!!! I grew up baking from it. Woo hoo!!!!

I use the Libby's and it turns out great every time. I use a glass deep dish pie pan. The recipe fills it just right.

I know it adds and extra step, but I also heat my canned pumpkin (with all the spices) in a pot until just over warm to the touch. I find that it takes the tin-taste away.
